I already reviewed the China Glaze polish in Grass is Lime Greener. You can read the review here. Now that you know what I think about the colour, I was compelled to put some nail art on top of this beautiful florescent pastel green colour.
As usual, I used White from the Jordana French Manicure set for the dots and a cheapy nail striper that I’ve had for too many years for the stripes. What I found amazing is how tame the colour became after adding a little white. It really brought out the pastel tone… which is bitter sweet since the brightness of the base colour is what I loved about it most. If you need to see how the dots were created, watch the video below.

The ring finger accent nail (which I promise not to use for the remainder of the Spring) was the same as the last time:
- LA Colors Color Craze nail polish in Glitter Bomb (on top)
- Kleancolor Nail Laquer in Pearl Silver (on bottom)
So, this was a pretty basic nail art look, but doing this nail art design taught me 2 things that I’d love to share with you:
- You must have a good base for your nail art. You can’t fix a bad manicure or clumpy and streaky polish with nail art. The polish continued to crack and peel after the nail art was applied.
- You can totally change the tone of your base polish with the colour(s) you place on top of it. I’ll have to keep this in mind when I do my next nail inspired art look series coming in July.
Stay tuned and Keep It Kinky!
